NYFW: Days 4 & 5
Day 4, Sunday
Sunday morning, I woke up to see rain and sleet outside my window. This was not ideal since my friend and I wanted to do some sight seeing that morning. We decided to bear with it since this was our last morning together and we headed off to the Brooklyn Bridge. By the time we got to the bridge, the sleet was coming down hard and the wooden bridge was starting to get a thick layer of ice on it! We slipped and slide as far as we could go to snap some pictures.
Shop my winter weather outfit:
After our icy adventure, we headed to Laduree in Soho for breakfast. This location was absolutely gorgeous. They have a larger dining area than the others and it is SO cute inside. We set on velvet tufted chairs and enjoyed mini macchiatos.
Around midday, my friend had to head off to the airport and I headed to brunch at the Pennsylvania 6 with my Style Collective gals. Joining Style Collective was one of the best decisions I made before attending fashion week. It helped a lot to have a large group of girls going who were supportive of each other. I will tell you more details in a future post with NYFW tips! If you’re interested, you can check them out and join here.
After brunch I had two shows back to back. Verdad and then Leanne Marshall. Both were amazing, but especially Leanne Marshall because she had to many feminine, gorgeous gowns. Hopefully you saw it on my stories!
That afternoon I moved to my new hotel at the Lexington while it was raining. That was an adventure in itself, but I survived!
That night I went to the Namilia show and it was wayyy out there. Definitely not my style, but that’s okay. It was a lot of puffy coats with political messages on them, like “ready for trumpocalypse”… haha. Yes. One of my friends warned me awhile ago that it was a crazy show, but I had totally forgot. I was a little bummed that I spent 3 hours of my night getting there and going back home, etc., but I learned my lesson.
Day 5, Monday
Monday was a pretty chill day in comparison to the others. My first appointment of the day was with the Tresemme salon at the show venue. They always do an amazing job and braided my hair so much better than I ever could. I loved my sweet stylist!
After getting my hair done, I headed to the Katty Xiomara show. I really enjoyed this show. There was a lot of lace and velvet…a continuing theme from almost every show!
Immediately following the show, I had a quit photoshoot with Julia O Test. We walked to the High Line to snap some photos and it was SO windy up there!! It was cold and windy on the ground, so when we went up there it was like twice as windy. We couldn’t help but laugh because it felt like we were going to blow away. Hopefully we got some good shots amidst all of that craziness 😉
From the shoot, I walked over to Chelsea Market to grab some lunch and juice. I’ve been wanting to check this place out since I heard about it the last time Luke & I were in New York and I’m so glad I did. It is definitely a cute lunch spot with lots of great food and shops. Can’t wait to go back again.
My last show of the day was Sherri Hill. She designs formal and prom dresses and the gowns were stunning!! I’m glad that I had a pretty good seat for this show because I was loving all of the sparkly detail on every dress. This ranks up there as one of my favorite shows. It was my last show of NYFW actually, so it was the perfect one to end with.
After the show I went back to the hotel because I was so exhausted. I had to pack up my stuff to fly out the next day and get ready for another photoshoot. Thankfully, the Bachelor was on to keep me company, haha.
That’s almost a wrap on my NYFW days! What questions do you guys have? What else would you like to hear about fashion week? Let me know and I’ll be answering your questions soon.
